BWW Blog: Marina Maldonado - Bye Bye ECHS!
by Guest Blogger: Marina Maldonado - May 3, 2016

We only have six days left until ECHOStage's cast of Bye Bye Birdie takes the main stage! As we prepare for the move into our performance space, we have to strike our set, repaint it, and load it up into the drama room and eventually into the U-Haul. Most of our focus has been on the MacAfee's house. This is our first time building a house like this, so it's definitely a learning experience for all involved. Because of a project like this, our cast really noticed the importance of teamwork. There's something everyone can help with, even a cast member with no artistic abilities whatsoever (me) can help paint the drops a single solid color and manage to be successful at it!! It's not even just the structure of the house itself, but all the little details that go into it, like sketching and painting details like the oven and little things that will make it more realistic.  (more...)
